Numerous federal and state laws protect disabled employees from discrimination. Generally, covered employers cannot discriminate against qualified individuals with a disability. A qualified individual is a person who has a disability and who, with or without reasonable accommodation, can perform the essential functions of a job. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 requires that employers provide reasonable accommodation to qualified individuals with a disability to enable them to perform their job. This applies to all terms, conditions, and privileges of employment, and it protects both applicants and employees.
